High Calcium Score from CardioScan

Hi Everyone,

So happy to find this forum - My Dad is 77 and the epitome of health - exercises 5 times a week, does not smoke or drink, blood pressure is normal, etc..

He just had a cardioscan done and his calcium/agatston score is 1655 - we are all in shock...I am looking for people who have had similar scores to talk with me about what was done - were there non-invasive procedures on invasive procedures and the details of treatment.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide!

The first thing that needs to be determined is "why" your father's calcium level is so high.  Once this is determined, only then can you know what treatment is needed.  Causes of high calcium levels vary from simple to very serious, so please ask his doctor to determine his cause, and go from there.
